Michael Caruso hopes to repeat history at Queensland Raceway
Prior Alfa Romeo form at Queensland Raceway provides a promising outlook for Ashley Seward Motorsport driver Michael Caruso as he aims to score his first victory of the 2022 season.
Driving the Autoglym supported Giulietta Veloce TCR can be confident in both the Ashley Seward Motorsport team and the Alfa Romeo as the combination took two out of three victories on Supercheap Auto TCR Australia’s last visit in 2019.
So far it’s been a mixed campaign where a combination of mechanical maladies and tyre problems have dropped Caruso down to 13th, although he still remains less than 100 points from series leader Tony D’Alberto.
Although an older model compared to its rivals, the Alfa Romeo demonstrated it remains a strong contender when Caruso qualified the Autoglym entry on the front row at Phillip Island and he is hoping to emulate the success his team experienced three years ago.
“I’m pretty eager to get back in the car, especially given the success that the ASM team have had in the past at Queensland Raceway,” said Caruso.
“I know how motivated everyone in the team is to get ourselves up the front and show everyone what we can do. I’ve got plenty of miles up in Ipswich, enough to really have a whole dataset of results. I have had great weekend’s up there and some less successful ones to but it’s been a few years since my last visit and I’m really looking forward to getting up there.
“It’s going to be good to see all the categories competing at the revamped track and showcasing the investments that Tony Quinn has made.”
Caruso is determined to follow through on the potential the package demonstrated earlier in the year.
“We have shown throughout the year that we are one of the contenders to be at the very front, it’s just a matter of time until it happens,” said Caruso.
“We will continue to put out best foot forward each day and I’m very positive in what we can achieve.”
